    Abstract

    Urbanization is the process of migration in and around cities leading to both physical and social changes. The process of urbanization is linked to industrialization and yet scholars have conflicting views on the predominant motivators for this relocation. Since the end of World War II, cities have seen a further outward expansion, or “suburbanization.” However, these flows have also changed in recent years leading to new forms of urban change, from gentrification and accumulation by dispossession to counterurbanization. Finally, it is critical to make note of the emergent “global cities” that have arisen in an era of “globalization” as key sites of capital accumulation, circulation, consumption, and agglomeration.
